  • From using the sd Quattro, EVF is the next most important piece, IMO. The EVF is usable, but annoying. You don't want to make a FF high priced camera with a mediocre viewfinder.

    Good info to know. Do you know if the passthru matrix the same on all Sigma cameras (with color modes)?
  • Replied in no
    This might be better than my approach. I only tested an SD1 (pre-Merrill), and at that point, there were other issues with color that have been corrected in firmware updates. On the SD14, a CWB ...

    It seems like a good custom white balance and correct PP for contrast would do the same, or probably better. -John

  • Hi Charles. I've sold a fair amount of Sigma gear, cameras and lenses, on ebay. In my opinion, it gives you the biggest population of potential buyers, even if the platform isn't as easy as before. ...
  • a long exposure without the ND filter. I would try taking a photo in the evening, just to see if the artifact is caused by the camera or the filter
  • I have 2 variable ND filters, and I know if I approach the Max setting, there is often a blue colored X shape across the image, which is related to going too far with the adapter. I've never seen ...

    Thanks. I have not read through Paul Roark's info yet, so that's good to know. The R300 seems to be very inexpensive, so that's a positive for me. -John
  • Replied in academic fraud
    David, I think you could easily call this "artistic license", rather than fraud. And your two month story has me intrigued. I would love to have the ability to create good B&W prints, without the ...

  • Is there any way to get the cars out of the way for a shot around this time? This time frame usually gets illuminated light inside at just a little brighter than the remaining sunlight, and ...
  • I think I still have the SA300 and SA-1 in a box somewhere...
  • I've owned a few of the cameras, because I bought a Sigma SA lens, with a film camera attached. I haven't used one, so I don't really know much about them. The SA7 and SA7N had discolored ...
  • I've gone the opposite direction and used some lenses from SA-1 and SA300 cameras on the SD Quattro. Except for AF, they still work fine.
  • I miss printing photos. I started photography in a B&W darkroom, and then it was all about the print. I'm considering also picking up an old printer like the R300 you've got, and see what I can ...

  • David, This is good stuff, thanks for posting it in this thread, since it's the only way I would see it! Honestly, I'm going to just watch your results for now, before buying an old printer, but I ...
